Warsztat: Voice Ecology (EN)
Voice Ecology formed from joining the lifelong passion for creative expression with the deep concern and need to respond to our climate crisis. When our self-awareness also includes our environment, how does this affect our self-expression? When I sing, is it just me singing, or is all of nature singing through me?
Voice Ecology is a vocal training approach that explores our voice as a tool for self-discovery, expression, and connection to nature. It is built on rigorous, playful, and carefully directed improvisation combined with mindfulness exercises and reflection. Voice exploration unlocks tremendous power for play, expression, and discovery – of ourselves and others. It is my belief that we live in a time when people’s true voices are deeply needed to be expressed and heard.
